Michael Rein, one of the McHenry County Board members not afraid to stand up to Democratic Party Chairman Jack Franks, is holding a $50 Woodstock Square fundraiser the night of August 15th.
Because of his standing up against our Board Chairman bully, Jack Franks’ allies attached Rein in the Republican Primary Election through an anonymous entity calling itself the “Illinois Integrity Fund.”
Besides Rein, included in the Re;publican candidates attacked by the Breaker Press-printed mailers were
- Joe Tirio, running for County Clerk
- Chuck Wheeler, running for County Board in the McfHenry-Richmond-Spring Grove area
- Orville Brettman, running is District 6
- Ersel Schuster, running in District 6
The negative mailings were successful in defeating Brettman and Schuster.
On the District 5 County Board Republican ballot with Rein is John Jung.
Running as Democrats are AFSCME union leader Carlos Acosta and former Green Party candidate Frank Wedig.
